Sally is a tropical storm, and is expected to become a category one hurricane before landfall in southeast Louisiana late Monday or early Tuesday.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Vermilion, Iberia, St. Mary, and St. Martin Parishes. This area could see wind gusts of 40 to 60 mph late Monday and Tuesday. Expect scattered power outages, toppled trees, and some roof damage in these areas.

Rainfall projections are 1-3 inches for south central Louisiana. Minor coastal flooding is expected during high tides on Monday.

Be aware that some of the trees left standing after Hurricane Laura are quite vulnerable. Wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph could blow down some of these trees and/or damage tarps on our roofs.

As a result of Hurricane Laura, many residents of Louisiana have experienced power outages and have resorted to using generators to power their homes and appliances. Troopers urge those affected by these power outages to exercise caution while using a generator.

Below are a couple of tips to keep in mind while using your generator:

Portable generators should never be used indoors. This includes in a garage, carport, basement, crawl space or other enclosed or partially enclosed area, even those with ventilation.

Gas-powered generators produce an exhaust of carbon monoxide which is odorless and colorless. Inhaling carbon monoxide can rapidly lead to full incapacitation or death. Opening windows, doors or using fans will not prevent the build-up of carbon monoxide. If you start to feel sick, dizzy or weak while using a generator, get to fresh air IMMEDIATELY. Be sure to place the generator away from doors, windows and vents that could allow carbon monoxide to come indoors.

Keep the generator dry and do not use in rain or wet conditions.

This is EVERY trash pickup day. Apparently they don't know the difference between the road and the driveway. Just another example of great municipal service we get here in Entitlement Parish.
